Accenture Federal Services has won a $329 million prime contract to manage a comprehensive information assurance and privacy program for the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
Accenture will deliver services, including risk and compliance support, incident management, diagnostics and mitigation support, threat intelligence and analysis, as well as a privacy program and cyber awareness training for Agency personnel.
“USAID leads the federal government’s international development efforts in more than 100 nations. To accomplish its humanitarian mission to reduce poverty and strengthen democratic governance, USAID relies on a vast network of partners and a complex technology ecosystem capable of addressing overseas challenges,” said Accenture Federal Services CEO John Goodman.
Accenture Federal Services will support USAID’s Bureau for Management, Office of the Chief Information Officer with managing a sophisticated information assurance program with the ability to adapt as the global threat landscape rapidly evolves.
